CV NEWS FEED // At the Family Research Council’s (FRC) Pray Vote Stand Summit, former President Donald Trump promised to pardon or commute the sentences of pro-life activists targeted by the Biden Justice Department under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
“Marxists and Stalinists in the administration got a Washington, D.C., jury to convict five pro-life activists who are now facing up to 11 years in prison for simple acts of protest,” Trump said Friday:
To reverse these cruel travesties of justice, tonight I’m announcing that the moment I win the election, I will appoint a special task force to rapidly review the cases of every political prisoner who’s been unjustly persecuted by the Biden administration, so that I can study the situation very quickly and sign their pardons or commutations on Day One. Never again will the federal government be used to target religious believers.”
Trump observed an apparent double standard between how the Biden administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) treats pro-life protestors and those demonstrating for leftist causes.
“Others are being sentenced to 10, 15, and even 20 years in prison for retribution for their political beliefs, while Antifa and other groups burn down cities like Portland, like Minneapolis,” Trump said. “They kill people, they loot, they plunder, and they go free.”
In the same speech, Trump also promised to “sign a law prohibiting child sexual mutilation … in all 50 states.”
“They mutilate our children and we’re not going to let that happen,” he said.
Trump went on to express support for school choice. “I will close immediately the Department of Education and we will move everything back to the states,” he promised.
He also said he would “sign a new executive order to cut federal funding for any school pushing critical race theory, transgender insanity, and other inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content on our children.”
